Saturday, December 12

I'm back in Mountain Home this weekend for three Christmas parties. My twelve pictures today were all taken at the home of my good friends Chris and Estella Tullgren, who hosted an open house this afternoon. Much of our morning was spent preparing for the party. I hope you enjoy what I saw.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the decorations (and the pantry). Wonder what we made with the contents of that trash? It was a Citrus Champagne Punch made with loads of fresh lemon juice, sugar, a bit of sweet vermouth, Limoncello, Vodka and, of course, Champagne. Don't even ask about the nutritional supplements.....just know that I didn't take them. See you next month.
